    Bypass netg gear firewall (Netgear DG834)

    Hi all,

    Is there a way to bypass the netgear firewall and view a website that was blocked by the netgear dg834 router/firewall?

    Thanks,

    If you could, I'd take it back and ask for my money back.

    Well, the router works fine, but I have blocked the site in purpose, I just want to know if there is something that I can use, that will bypass the firewall and let me access the blocked site. By the way the blocked site is : facebook.

    Cheers

    Yes - I believe you can restrict the restrictions in the router to specific pc's connecting to the router. In other words, you could set up the router to allow you, but nobody else, to access Facebook.

    If you are asking is there some way someone can 'hot wire' a bypass around the router, I don't believe so.

    There is a proxy network named TOR, I believe, that allows people to access sites without revealing their own IP address. To connect to the site, you pass the destination name to the proxy network. Because the router (and filtering software) usually is not parsing the details of the communications with such a proxy, this will allow a bypass. Much to the regret of repressive government regimes everywhere. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
